We just got the long awaited call from the adoption agency….
….and we were not chosen to be this baby’s family. Of course there is disappointment and a twinge of sadness, however we are thrilled that this precious baby has a family to love and care for him. We also have a complete trust in the Lord and His will for our lives. While we are confident that adoption is a part of our future, we will trust the Lord for the right child for us, in the right time. God’s ways are perfect. We have been praying very specifically for the past two weeks that the Lord would use the birth mom to make the best decision. So we trust that the Lord is closing this door.
Upon hearing the news my heart sank a bit but within minutes the counselor gave us some exciting and hopeful news as well! Two weeks ago they received a call from the hospital – a pregnant teenager who was about to give birth to her baby and wanted information about adoption. This baby boy was born on April 27 and is currently in one of the agency’s “cradle care”homes (temporary care). The birth mom is officially relinquishing her rights late next week and they will show her profiles including ours at that time. So we immediately have another sweet baby and his mother to pray for. (and a couple extra weeks to raise the last $2,500 needed)
Please pray along with us as we wait again and hope that this is the child meant just for our family! We will keep you updated.
